SKU 20320


Another superior warm Chardonnay vintage, full ripeness shows lushness, creaminess, a little phenolic punctuation, with excellent weight and length. At the same time, there is balance and fine, crystalline accents of wet stones, chalk, fleshy peach, honeysuckle, green apple, candied ginger, Turkish delights, and lemon zest. Lovely, long and lush! And why was it we thought we needed barrel to give interest to Chardonnay? (Yes, a rhetorical question!)

Wine EnthusiastAged entirely in stainless steel tanks, this carries a light touch (7 g/L) of residual sugar but remains sharp, even edgy, with bright acidity and pine needle highlights. Ripe apple and pineapple flavors carry through the clean and refreshing finish.

Wine AdvocateAn unoaked style, the 2016 Chardonnay INOX conjures notions of fresh apples, nectarines and honeydew melon on the nose with hints of white pepper and nutmeg. Light to medium-bodied, with plenty of pure, refreshing fruit in the mouth, it finishes long and uncomplicated.
